Week 1 The Story of Bread

The Story of Bread always starts with the ingredients. I have been enjoying using fresh ground whole grain flour! Other then that there is not a whole lot that goes into bread. 
 The yeast is one of the most important parts of the bread. You have to be carful not to kill it too soon with really hot water but the warmer the water the faster it grows. The neat thing about yeast is it is actually all around in the air and you don't really have to add it to the bread because it car take it from the air.


 After mixing the ingredients and kneeding it for awhile it has to rise...
 and rose some more...
 and rise some more although I forgot to make a photograph of it fully risen to the top of the bowl. After it is nice and huge it has to be punched down and formed into loves. My favorite loves are round cottage ones verses the standard bread-pan loves. I also like painting the loves with egg to make a nice golden crust. Then it has to rise some more...


 And finally after it has risen big and fluffy it gets baked.
 And finally eaten, yum yum!

And that is my first weekly challenge. I hope you enjoyed it and the photographs.

I was fortunate enough that a storm blew threw and then was followed by some lightly overcast hours. It made for a great time to photograph. There were water droplets on all the flowers and the light was nice and diffused but still bright. The photograph above is my favorite this week because of the stark contrast between the bright yellow and the dark green. I also like ho the plane of focus puts the tip of the inner part of the flower, the water droplets on the petal, and a line of green leaves in focus. I made a hug amount of photographs in a very short time largely because I was using extension tubes on my 50mm prime lens without a tripod and with some wind blowing things around. It is incredibly hard to focus with the extension tubes because I have to move the camera instead of just turning a ring on the lens. I dod manage to cope with fast shutter speeds and lot…
